I always ensure my vehicles have good tyres as they help me to stay on the road and allow me to stop quickly.
At Worcester’s Mobile Mechanic we have adopted the EU tread limit of 3mm as our advisory limit, which makes me wonder why the EU did not bring the UK into line with the rest of Europe over tread depth.
The answer is a lot of used tyres end up here – which means we then have to dispose of the old carcasses.
These tyres were all legal but they were also old and the sidewalls were cracking. The customer took our advice and renewed all tyres.
